‘Captain Marvel’ makes $760 million in its first 12 days; Ohio women’s basketball misses out on NCAA tournament

Today is Tuesday, March 19, 2019. Here’s what you need to know:

Good morning, 

Captain Marvel has soared at the box office, proving the first female-led film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe can join the club with the other successful superhero films. 

In its first 12 days, Captain Marvel made $760 million in global ticket sales, and it is quickly skyrocketing toward the “billion dollar club,” which would make it the eighth comic book adaptation to reach that high. 

With the rise of superhero films like Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel, more female-empowered movies are making their way into becoming the norm, and it proves it doesn’t take a male lead to spike the box office charts.
